No joke, not even the funny ones, Lamar Odom still has a long, tough road to recovery. A person doesn’t just magically recover from being in a coma. It takes years and years and there’s a good chance the individual never fully goes back to their old self.

Some people who shall not be named claim that Lamar is doing “well” and could be “mentally fully recovered in a year and half” (probably just in time to pitch a reality show), close friends say Lamar is no where near close to even being at 50% health.

Although Khloe Kardashian said last month that the 36-year-old former NBA star could be “mentally fully recovered” in a year and a half, a source close to Lamar tells ET that, currently, he’s far from looking like his old self.

“He’s not doing great,” the source says. “His speech is still slurred and he can barely walk on his own yet. He forgets a lot of people’s names — sometimes even his own. He definitely has some memory loss.”

He doesn’t even remember his own name. That’s sad news. He seems like a genuinely nice guy. Maybe he’ll only forget all the Kardashians. That would be to his benefit.
